Shubman Gill smashes his maiden ton in English county

Shubman Gill is a big name in conversations regarding upcoming cricket players in India. Without a question, the 23-year-old Punjabi player is a rising star not just in Indian cricket but also internationally. Gill has everyone in awe with how he handled the finest bowlers in the world with his stroke play. Fans of the Indian cricket team still vividly recall his 91-run inning in the storied Gabba Test.

For India, Gill has accumulated more than 500 runs in 11 Test matches. The batter is just as strong in white-ball cricket as they are in red-ball cricket. In nine one-day internationals for India, the 23-year-old has amassed 499 runs at an average of 71.24 thanks to three half-centuries and one century, which came this year against Zimbabwe. This game marked Gill’s final international debut for India before he began his first county career with Glamorgan County Cricket Club.

Shubman Gill batting skill remained the same despite the change in format. The talented batsman scored his first county century on Tuesday, continuing his impressive run (27 September). The 23-year-old reached the three-figure mark in 123 balls while playing against Sussex as Glamorgan passed 250 for the loss of four wickets in the first innings. Gill bowed to the dressing room to celebrate surpassing the three-figure threshold.

Gill fired all over the park

Two sixes and 16 fours were part of Gill’s inning. The hitter eventually was out for 119 when he mishit a lofted shot off the bowling of Sean Hunt that fell straight into Jack Carson’s hands. Gill also scored a half-century (92) against Worcestershire prior to this century. This year, the batter has been in excellent form.

As the Men in Blue are ready to host South Africa for three ODIs, the Indian batsman is anticipated to return to national action. Gill will undoubtedly be selected for the team, which will be lead by veteran batter Shikhar Dhawan.
